Staining may be the most common cosmetic dental complaint, and one of the simplest and fastest to address. But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t great options available to help address other issues. In fact, cosmetic dentists offer a number of ways to correct a host of esthetic issues, such as disproportionally small or large teeth, gaps, and jagged edges. Bonding, contouring and veneers are three wonderful ways to help hide imperfections and bring out your smile’s natural beauty.
Which Treatment Is Best for You?
- Bonding involves adding a composite resin to the teeth, which the dentist can then sculpt to create a more unified shape. This resin can also effectively hide permanent staining or even minor spacing issues, such as gaps between a few teeth.
- Contouring, on the other hand, is used when teeth are disproportionally large or jagged. This treatment involves carefully etching away portions of the teeth, which jut out or cause the smile to look uneven. It can also be used to correct minor overlapping of teeth, which can improve the look of your smile, but can also make it easier to properly care for your teeth and gums, by making it easier to brush and floss effectively.
- Porcelain veneers offer a wonderful way to correct a number of imperfections. By affixing porcelain veneers to your teeth, a dentist can quickly create a more symmetrical and brighter smile. In fact, veneers are one of the most popular forms of cosmetic treatment because of how effectively they can hide a number of issues in very little time.
